Host Color Launches New KVM Based Virtual Dedicated Servers

📅 - Customers can now get low cost VPS hosting services, while choosing between three virtualization platforms - OpenVZ VPS, KVM, Xen virtual machines.

Host Color, a provider of Linux VPS Hosting services, recently announced the launch of new Virtual Dedicated Servers (VDS) based on KVM virtualization (Kernel-based Virtual Machine). The new KVM virtual machines in are hosted in the company's core data center located in South Bend, Indiana, 90 miles from Chicago. With the launch of the new VDS, customers can now get low cost VPS hosting services, while choosing between three virtualization platforms - OpenVZ VPS, KVM, Xen virtual machines. All Virtual Dedicated Servers are manageable with SolusVM VPS automation control panel.

The company articulates that it offers four standard Virtual Private Server (or also VDS) plans:

VPS Start
  • 768 MB RAM
  • 20 GB space
  • 1,000 GB monthly bandwidth
  • 2 dedicated IP addresses
VPS Advance
  • 1,536 MB RAM
  • 40 GB space
  • 2,000 GB monthly bandwidth
  • 2 dedicated IP addresses
  • free SSL certificate with one year contracts
VPS Power
  • 2,432 MB RAM
  • 60 GB space
  • 3,000 GB monthly bandwidth
  • free SSL certificate with one year contracts
VPS Custom
  • 3,712 MB RAM
  • 100 GB space
  • 3,000 GB monthly bandwidth
  • 5 dedicated IP addresses
It states that among other benefits of its KVM based VPS Hosting plans are:
  • An opportunity for the customers to choose custom kernels and custom kernel modules for their VDS
  • Set up of a VPN server in (PPTP, OpenVPN, IPSec)
  • Use Windows, Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris operating system
  • Run a Window manager such as Gnome or KDE and interaction with it using the VNC
The company further states that Kernel-based Virtual Machine, popular with its abbreviation KVM, is a virtualization technique that allows the hypervisor (VMM or Virtual Machine Manager) to be embedded into the OS Kernel. This makes possible for the Kernel-based virtual machines to benefit a lot from excellent disk and network I/O performance. The KVM virtual servers also feature Virtual Network Computing (VNC) that gives the company's customers full access to the console of the VDS. This means that they can work in a physical-like IT Hosting environment and manage their virtual machines as fully isolated dedicated servers.

It mentions that unlike the OpenVZ based VPS, on the KVM based Virtual Dedicated Servers the server memory (RAM) and hard disk space are not 'shared' with other virtual machines on the underlying host server system. This means that the resources allocated on any KVM VPS cannot be assigned to another virtual server and that overselling is not possible. The customers of the new KVM-based VPS/VDS Hosting plans, who use cPanel/WHM hosting automation panel, can also activate by 1-click a free Content Delivery Network (CDN) service info their virtual machines. The company adds that the promotional campaign on 100 Mbps Unmetered bandwidth (Unmetered Dedicated Servers) ports, announced recently by it, is available to users of the new KVM-based Virtual Dedicated Servers. Customers who wants to get a 100 Mbps quality bandwidth should open a support ticket with subject '100 Mbps Unmetered' from their accounts.
